We bring in Tori Porell to discuss what happened to their organization, where this pressure is coming from, and why getting suspended might have been the best thing for free speech. (Please note: The views expressed in this episode are not those of KRUU-FM.)

Northeastern University Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) works to raise awareness about the plight of Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza, and inside Israel. Their mission as students living in a democracy is to promote the cause of justice and speak out against oppression and occupation. Their goal is to raise awareness about this issue and provide students with alternative resources of information than the mainstream media. SJP will also work to provide a comfortable environment where students and faculty can discuss and debate their diverse views on the various aspects of Palestinian politics and society. They do not support violence in the region and will highlight the Palestinians; non-violent efforts for peace. SJP supports and engages in the Global Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction (BDS) campaign and believe this it is the fundamental course of action necessary for a just peace. They hope that one day Palestinians will be free from occupation and will be able to determine their own fate as an independent nation living peacefully with its neighbors.
